Over the last week I've washed and primed the model and also now just completed all the camouflage painting on it. As it seems to have a hard edged scheme I used tamiya vinyl masking tape which is very easy to use and gives a nice crisp edge. Masking was also reasonably quick as it's a small model. I used the suggested tamiya mixes as well which I think worked out very well.
I just have the canopy to mask and paint but am waiting on some masks to arrive for that. And I will also paint the tail fin white in preparation for the decals later.
